Repeat Winner Claims $60,000 In Less Than Two Weeks!
A gift from dad turns into a $20,000 Instant Win
The Warwick woman that claimed a $30,000 PowerBall® Power Play® prize last Tuesday, claimed winning Daily Numbers tickets for another $30,000 win yesterday.
The winner was in disbelief when she and her husband saw the Numbers results for the April 11 Numbers drawing in the newspaper. They told Lottery staff once they double-checked the results online, they were suddenly filled with happiness.
The winner played the number 3 6 8 3, which was inspired by her brother's license plate, on four $1 4-digit Straight wagers winning $5,000 on each and four $.50 Straight wagers winning $2,500 on each ticket. Her immediate plans for the winnings are to make much needed home renovations and save the rest in the bank.
All eight winning Numbers tickets were purchased at Lakewood Liquors, Inc., 774 Warwick Ave., Warwick.
Additionally, A Warwick woman received a "just because" gift from her dad that resulted in a $20,000 win. While at Mobil, 2336 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence, her dad asked the clerk for a "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket and gave it to her. She scratched and matched the first number to win $1,000, then matched the second for $1,000, and matched the third and so on until all twenty numbers matched for a total of $20,000!
She couldn't believe she won but her dad was convinced right away. When they came to the Lottery to validate the ticket, the winner said she looked over the ticket several times and is still in shock. The winner plans to have some fun with the winnings but save most of the money.
As of April 16, 2015, the "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket has seventeen $20,000 prizes and one $1 million top prize, in addition to over 148,000 prizes ranging from $20 to $5,000 remaining to be claimed.
